I couldn’t imagine a better cover model for our April Men’s Issue than Nacho Figueras. As the face of Ralph Lauren Black Label, this sexy six-goal Argentine polo player embodies the kind of rugged-yet-refined masculinity that appeals to just about everyone. He also personifies the ultimate all-American (remember, that term includes South America, too) aesthetic, especially as we know it in Miami: After all, what city in the world appreciates the lifestyle mix of heart-pounding outdoor sports and posh luxuries like we do?
Speaking of glamorous Latins, this happens to be the month we debut our new “Fascinante” column, written by Venezuelan-American Joyce Chehebar. Each month, she’ll bring us the lowdown on all that’s haute and fabulous in food, fashion and culture from Oaxaca to Ushuaia and beyond. This issue I’d also like to introduce our new nightlife columnist, Bill Kearney, who is documenting the best parties and personalities in “Up Late,” as well as his nights out with Miami’s most interesting movers and shakers (this month it’s author Brian Antoni) in “On the Town.”
Who says there’s not a good man left in this town? Contributor Henry Quintero and our new editor at large, Jose Ortiz, found four! Read their piece on the “Most Wanted” bachelors in Miami, profiling some of the city’s hottest and most successful men who are still single and looking (as I type).
I don’t have to tell anyone how much times have changed over the past year, let alone this first decade of the millennium, but it’s interesting that more women are making more money than their husbands than ever before. And rather than feel emasculated, modern guys are loving it, subscribing to the “it’s just as easy to fall in love with a rich girl as a poor one” adage. Read writer Humberto Guida’s thoughts on how—and why—men should snag their own millionairesses in “The Rise of the New Sugar Momma.”
